RCMP are trying to find a man who tried to hold up a corner store in Salmo on Friday with what appeared to be a handgun.
On Friday at about 6:45 p.m, a man carrying what appeared to be a black handgun entered Piper’s General Store at 701 Glendale Ave. and pointed it at an employee, telling her to hand over cash after he placed a bag on the counter.
However, he left without taking any money. No shots were fired, and no one was injured.
Police arrived within a few minutes and tried to use a dog to track the suspect, unsuccessfully.
The suspect was wearing a dark navy coloured zip-up hoody with white pinstripes down the sleeves. His head was covered by the hood and a full face mask.
The suspect remains at large. RCMP ask anyone with information to contact them at 250-357-2212 or phone Crime Stoppers.
Police have declined to release any more information about the incident.
